Dr Jeffrey Kwong: My name's Jeffrey Kwong. I'm an adult gerontology primary care nurse practitioner and HIV specialist, and professor at Rutgers University, in Newark, New Jersey. And thank you so much for participating and viewing this session on Preventing HIV: Strategies for Primary Care Clinicians. Some of the key take-home points that I want you to remember when taking this information back into practice is that there are effective methods available to prevent HIV. And primary care clinicians play a critical role in terms of assessing, diagnosing, and providing access to this intervention. And working together, we can end the HIV epidemic.
